Centura Elementary Students Performed at their Winter Concert

On Thursday, December 7th the Centura Elementary students performed at their Winter Concert to a completely full gymnasium. It was wonderful to have so many people come out and support our elementary musicians. The 5th and 6th grade bands did a fantastic job of performing some traditional Holiday classics. We got to hear them play some unison music as well as some more challenging arrangements.

The theme for the singers at the concert was “Christmas in the Movies”. Each grade level performed a couple of familiar songs inspired by famous Holiday movies. One of the highlights was when the third graders performed the song “Polar Express” and Bladen Rathman got to shine as he played the Conductor. The other grades got to sing songs from the movies Frozen, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, and many others. Overall, it was a very successful evening and the students did a great job of showing how much they have improved as musicians this school year.
